Description

This is an update on a pioneering reintroduction project and its much celebrated success. Also provides essential background and a logical and objective summary of its justification and significance in global conservation terms. Very much a personal account, although fundamentally based upon and cognisant of the science, deriving much from the author's own experiences and researches.

This intimate account tells all that has happened since the reintroduction of the white-tailed sea eagle first began and exactly how its successes over the subsequent three and a half decades have received such worldwide recognition and acclaim. It describes the pioneering Rum releases (Phase 1) with which the author had been intimately involved, summaries of the Wester Ross (Phase 2) and East Scotland (Phase 3) releases with up-to-date information on the current Irish project in Kerry. A Saga of Sea Eagles includes a classification of the eagles and their folklore and information about the bird's history, distribution and biology including its breeding and feeding habits. The reader learns how the kudos of having sea eagles nesting locally has brought considerable economic benefit to Scottish communities, as it has in Norway and elsewhere.
